When charging/checking one of my batteries, the third green led doesn't light up.  Once charged, I have 3 of four leds lit - 1,2 & 4.  Battery came directly from DJI and is almost a year old.  Seems to charge ok and if I charge it just before flying wiht it - it does start out at 100% in the Go app.

How concerned should I be that I am seeing a battery go bad, and will DJI replace it if there's a concern?

TIA.

I would definitely ping DJI. If the LED is bad, there's no guarantee everything else is good...

It's just the led is bad/broken wire/led. You can send it in but then you will be without the battery.   If you can live with out the light it really isn't a big deal.  It's not a diagnostic announcement of some sort saying there is a problem

That's what I'm thinking.  I was hoping someone knew if there was some connection to the led and some diagnostic/connection to power that I may not know about that could/should be corrected before I trusted it again.  Not overly concerned about not having the battery for a while - it's one of four and for my needs, that's enough.

Thanks.

I would contact DJI and see whether it is a warranty issue.
If not, you could open it yourself and maybe repair it.
I would just leave it just the it is and use the app to determine the charge.

What did DJI say? Are they replacing/ repairing the battery for you?

Any time there is anything questionable about a battery you should contact DJI and put the battery in a LiPo bag. They could explode at any time.

Risk of an explosion is just about non existent beings it's just an led not lighting up.  everything still works besides the one led light. No other faults or issues.

Hey bud, it's not worth the risk, you could loose your house from an explosion via a battery. If anything seems remotely off you should replace the battery.

not saying your worries are without merit,  personally i wouldn't have an issue with it.  up to the OP at end of the day but me personally, i wouldn't have an issue with it.   if the battery is showing healthy in the app, charging and running fine its just a connection or led failure.   the batteries have all kinds of sensors internally monitoring just about all aspects of the battery and if one of them detects a failure, the battery throws an error.   

if you look at all the lipo batteries dji has out there,  well over 100k of them, only a hand full have went critical and melted down/burned.    only a couple were at random and without damage.    personally in my eyes its just an led light.  not a dent or anything major reason for concern
